SOUTH SIDE LOOK FORWARD TO ANNUALHOCrSHOW Arrangements for the National Swine Exposition Rapidly Being Perfected; Many rA New Features. Chicago Exemption Board Figures Show Good Progress Chicago, Aug. fS. Reports of forty-seven ' of the eighty-six draft ex emption boards in Chicago showed that 8,994 registrants had been ex amined up to today, of whom 6,558 were regarded as physically fit. In the forty-seven districts 4,507 regis trants nave1 made exemption claims. Arrangements for the second an nual -Vational Swine show; to he held in the new horse and mule ban?! at the stock yards, are rapidly being perfected. The premium list offering over $15,000 in cash and trophies is going to the printer, and over 10.000 of the lists will be mailed to inter ested hog raisers throughout the United States. Exceptional interest is being mani fested by a great number of thor oughbred hog raisers who have de cidedly good herds, but who did -.not exhibit at the National Swine, show last year. Early reports indicate the second show will far surpass last year's show in both numbers shown and in quality. ' v It was a distinctive feature of the 1916 show that never before was so great an amount of hog value ever gotten together under one roof, and from present prospect, the 1917 Na tional Swine show bids, fair to dis tance the former show in this respect. Breeders Are Enthusiastic. Additional interest in the show is being shown by hog raisers through out the country, due to their. desire to produce the greatest amount of pork per animal possible to meet the greatly increased demand, account of war conditions.'- Farmers, who through experience having learned that the quality blood in hogs lias the tendency toward producing a larger marketable animaf in less time than the ordinary every day stock, will be in attendance at the swiue show in increased numbers, to secure quauiy nog, as wen as aaoing new stock to their established herds. A new feature will be added to the 1917 show in the way of a hog judg ing contest between various state agricultural college student teams in the corn 'e't. Already six "colleges have signified their intention of en tering the contest. Cash prizes will i be offered. The prize fund is being , subscribed by the various breed and i agricultural papers throughout the i country. In order to accommodate the peo ple, of Omaha who are unable to at tend the show during the day. a num- , ber of evening shows will be held, for j which some added attractions are be- ing arranged. i , ' Intexicated Man Says He Never Touched Liquor Mike Amskororki, Twenty-seventh and 1 streets, who claims that- he never tasted a drop of liquor in his : life, va fcned $10 and costs by Police J Judge Madden in Soutfi Side, police ! court this morning. , !
